What I Liked About This Book
There is a lot to like about this book. I really like that the main character of this book is a strong female. She decides to solve a problem, and she doesn't hesitate to set out on an adventure. I like that the author has created a different and beautiful world. And I absolutely love that he used illustrations to show help the reader picture this world.
I also like that the author is kind of making a bigger statement. He is showing what happens when we forget to take care of the world we live in. Through Barra's story he is reminding us all of what happens when we don't heed some of the warnings that are offered.
Who Should Read This Book
Because of it's strong female main character this book is a good book for young adult females. But I believe that there are many adults who would enjoy this book too. The world that the author paints is rich. And fans of fantasy fiction will probably enjoy this book.
Sunborn Rising is the first book by Aaron Safronoff. He has a background in science and culinary arts. That's an interesting combination I think. And he is currently the "Chief Storyteller" at Neoglyphic Entertainment. Make sure to visit the Sunborn Rising Website. It's fun companion site to the book.
